You can see that mingw-w64 provides a toolchain, i.e. a set of alternative tools (compiler, linker, headers, etc.) used to compile your code for another system. Assuming you want to compile C++ code for a 64-bit system, you'll need to use /usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++-win32 . OK. I see now that the mingw-w64 installer changes its options once you select target type; so if x86_64 is selected then the only two options are sjlj as seh. So it looks like it is a choice between slow and debugger-fail. Perhaps I will post a new question about the debugging issue with seh. – M.M May 12 '15 at 21:47 Building the MinGW runtime for x86_64 is fairly straightforward, though there are several options available to give flexibility to the build. For the package itself, options are still being added and removed as development progresses. That said, this space should be relatively up to date. A command-line installer, with optional GUI front-end, (mingw-get) for MinGW and MSYS deployment on MS-Windows; A GUI first-time setup tool (mingw-get-setup), to get you up and running with mingw-get. MSYS, a contraction of "Minimal SYStem", is a Bourne Shell command line interpreter system. See also: mingw-w64 threads: posix vs win32. Build revision. I guess that's just another version number since Mingw(-w64) follows GCC versions (4.8.x, 4.9.x etc.). If you don't need an specific build, you should use the latest version. Threading issue. If the exception thrown is:
